The Weeknd Sets 2022 After Hours World Tour Dates


Ahead of the Weekend’s Super Bowl LV halftime show performance, the singer has announced his newly rescheduled After Hours World Tour dates — now set for 2022 — as well as a new greatest hits compilation.

After originally being set for 2020 and then postponed until 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the North American leg of the After Hours World Tour will now embark on January 14th, 2022 — almost two years after the hit album’s release — with two shows in Vancouver, British Columbia, and conclude May 1st in Tacoma, Washington.

In addition to fulfilling all the previously postponed shows, including a three-night stand at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, the Weeknd has also announced nearly a dozen new dates, including an April 7th, 2022 gig at Elmont, New York’s in-construction UBS Arena, which marks the first announced concert at the new home of the New York Islanders.

Other new dates include a stop at Seattle’s soon-to-open Climate Pledge Arena on March 4th, a Los Angeles Forum show on March 11th, and added dates in Chicago, Brooklyn, and Boston.

Previously purchased tickets for the original After Hours trek will be valid at their rescheduled show, while tickets for the new dates go on sale Monday, February 8th at 10 a.m. local time — hours after the Weeknd’s halftime performance — at the Weeknd’s site.

Additionally, the Weeknd has announced his The Highlights collection, an album of 18 tracks that the singer “curated for the Super Bowl.” That compilation, due out February 5th, is available to preorder now.

It’s official: ‘Excuse Me, I Love You’ Ariana Grande’s ‘Sweetener’ concert movie coming to Netflix


If you missed Ariana Grande’s «Sweetener» tour — or if you’d just like to relive it — Netflix is here to help.

The pop star and streaming service confirmed Wednesday that a concert movie, called «Excuse Me, I Love You» will drop on Dec. 21.

Grande spent nine months on the road last year promoting both her 2018 album «Sweetener» and 2019 followup «Thank U, Next.» She ended the tour by dropping her first live album, which featured all Grande’s new notable hits from the past two albums, as well as a handful of fan favorites from «Dangerous Woman» (2016), «My Everything» (2014) and «Yours Truly» (2013).

At the tour’s last stop in Inglewood, California, the singer, 27, was recorded by fans bursting into tears as she gave a farewell address.

«This would not have gone the way it did without you and I love you so much,» she said. «Thank you for traveling around the world to see me. I know some of you guys flew all over the (expletive) place to see me. Like, what? Why? What? Thank you. And why? I love you. This has been amazing. Thank you so much.»

Grande also thanked her crew backstage.

«It just takes so many people to do something like this and I’m really grateful to everyone involved and everyone here,» Grande said. «You guys have become family… It’s a lot to be away from your home and your family for this long and no one ever has a bad (expletive) attitude.»

Grande has since released «Positions,» her sixth studio album. It debuted Oct. 30.

Netflix has teamed with a number of other high-profile musicians in recently for specials, including the Shawn Mendes documentary «In Wonder» and «Blackpink: Light Up the Sky.»
